Neil Patrick Harris Will Take on Will on 'Glee'

And they named the character Bryan Adam, inspired by the Canadian pop star which must be some kind of tribute to Cobie Smulders' character Robin Scherbatsky on 'How I Met Your Mother.' All that's missing is Harold and Kumar dropping by for a blow.

In plain speak, 'Glee' will welcome Neil Patrick Harris for a guest role in an upcoming sweeps episode. The 'How I Met Your Mother' star has been rumored to be doing 'Glee,' but only if CBS let him appear on the competition during the heart of the TV season. It wouldn't be as bad if it was a summer series, but this is sweeps. That means some CBS show will be going up against Neil's 'Glee' episode. Michael Ausiello broke the details of Neil's character on the show. If you don't want to know, don't follow us on the jump. Just wander off and read the next story.

Okay, here's the scoop: Neil's character, Bryan Adam, was a member of the William McKinley glee club back in the day and he returns to the school as a member of the school board. His mission is to cut back on the arts programs. It's all about revenge. He's never gotten over the fact that he was king in high school, the best singer in glee -- far more popular than Will -- and because he never made it in the real world, he's bitter. Ausiello's insider said, "Show choir ruined his life, made him feel he could be a star, but all he could do is book Carnival cruises,. Now he wants vengeance."

There will flashbacks to show how awesome Bryan had been, how he was the star singer and got all the girls. Will was envious of Bryan, wishing he had what Bryan did. The show builds to a big face off between Bryan and Will. Could it possibly be a sing-off?

By the way, would the Bryan Adam era overlap with the April Rhodes era? When Kristin Chenoweth appeared on 'Glee,' her character had once been the star of show choir, when Wil was just a freshman trying to get noticed. Hmm... Wouldn't it be cool if Kristin popped in to the Neil episode?
